She captioned it: “And the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award for best actor in negative role for ‘Chalk n Duster’! Happyyyyy.”
“This is my first ever Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation award and that too for a negative role… It is just overwhelming,” she added in a statement.
Released in 2016, “Chalk n Duster” narrates the story of the commercialisation of the Indian private education system, the changing student-teacher relationship and issues faced by them.
Directed by Jayant Gilatar, the film also stars Juhi Chawla, Shabana Azmi, Zarina Wahab and Girish Karnad.
